Flash Video Format and 5k Run

May 23rd, 2009 Comments off

I think I am on to a solution for being able to put the videos up in Flash format which makes them more accessible to visitors using other browsers and operating systems. Turns out I needed to install an additional media player plug-in on the server. I still need to figure out the best way to get the video in the *.flv format in the first place. I still like VideoStudio for editing the movies… now if it would only save in *.flv without locking up.

OK, instead of using the *.flv file format, I am now using AVS Video Convertor to convert the *.wmv file to a *.swf (another Flash format) file. This seems to be working OK for me. I’d appreciate feedback on how this works (or doesn’t work) for eveybody else.

In other news, Chris and I ran in a 5k run this morning up at Wickham Park. I finished at 29:29 with Chris right on my heels at 30:00. It rained a bit off and on before and during the run. Vicky managed to stay dry and took some video of Chris and I. Here is a 3 minute video showing some of the highlights of today’s run.
